Check out our two campaigns!
Our purpose: to look over the shoulders of the park service and BLM (Bureau of Land Management). These are the agencies that in the past have killed burros or rounded them up to transport them to slaughter houses. Our sanctuary continues to work hard to abolish the cruel and unnecessary roundups of wild horses and burros from the land that is rightfully theirs.
In 1971, Congress passed the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act, which mandated range lands in ten states for America's wild horses and burros. The BLM has now leased millions of acres of the wild horse and burro range lands to cattle interests. Seven million head of cattle now graze on these designated range lands. Therefore, the only safe place for these displaced animals is a sanctuary.

the live capture-rescue, rehabilitation and lifelong care of otherwise doomed wild burros

We would like to let everyone know that we had a very difficult year last year and so we resorted to the help of a professional fund raising group calledFund Raising Strategies.Many of you are getting the mailers from them now, showing a mailing address in Los Angeles, CA rather than our address here in Olancha, CA. The reason being, this is how they are able to keep track of donations received. They have expanded our donor base and have helped give us more exposure out in the public.
Desperate needs means desperate measures. It has caused some confusion as the style of the writing in the flyers is so different than what many of our long-time donors are used to seeing. But please bear with us as we try to move forward with this method to raise money for our burros and their needs.
You are more than welcomed to mail your donation to our address here in Olancha also:
PO BOX 10 Olancha, CA 93549-0010
We thank you for your patience!
